After the shooting, the suspects fled in their Nissan Maxima, which was later found by police. No arrests have been made as of Saturday night.

No clear motives behind the shooting have emerged and the investigation is ongoing, police added.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call (901) 528-CASH.

The shooting was part of a violent shooting on Friday that left at least three people dead and several injured in Memphis.

At around 5 a.m. Friday, a shop assistant was shot multiple times during a robbery at a Valero gas station, just two miles from the shooting that left the two teens dead.

The suspect allegedly went behind the counter at the service station on Winchester Road and became increasingly angry with the clerk for moving ‘too slow’ when the attacker demanded money from the till.

Police said as soon as the cash register was opened, the suspect shot the clerk, took the money and ran away.
